CHM.. What is it..?

I’ve seen a lot of people not getting chm extension. CHM means Compiled HtMl Help file, it generally opens in windows only. Few days back I shared a java book in CHM format on my personal blog here. Now, I am the one who is always on move.., so I needed some handheld chm reader. A few digging up landed me to HugeMatrix CHM reader, this solved my problem of reading CHM files in my Nokia Symbian based mobile.
